Gravy Boat with Warming Stand

I only came across a gravy boat with a warming stand like this one recently and my first thought was - waht a great idea. If there's one thing I love about winter (I live in Australia so we're entering winter right now) is the Sunday roast with lashings of delicious gravy.

This cool looking gravy boat serves a great purpose in style - what more could you ask for.   Admitedly the candle under the gravy boat did make me think of 1970s fondues for just a moment, but the idea is still fantastic.

Apparently this glossy-white porcelain gravy boat will keep the gravy delicious piping hot - even for second helpings which means you should buy it!

The other great thing about winter is that I will often make apple pie for pudding on Sundays too - well I say pudding, but we generally let the roast settle for a bit so it's more like supper!   Anyway apple pie goes really well with custard and you know what?   You can also use this gravy boat to keep your custard lovely and warm, ideal to pour over your apple pie, apple crumble or whatever dessert rocks your boat1

I want one of these myself, but other ideas are to buy one for a housewarming gift or to give to newly weds etc.   Just don't forget to give them a few tealight candles as well.

Bottle of Wine Glass

Do you know someone who enjoys a nice drop of wine or two?   This very nicely sized wine glass will take a whole 750ml bottle of wine very nicely!

If you've ever seen Cougar Town then I believe that this glass is one that Jules would love even more than her 'big' glass, in fact her big glass might even be one of these...........I really need to pay more attention to that show!

I think that a bottle of wine glass also makes a great gag gift for any friend who enjoys a drop of red...........or white, or rose or just about any wine really.   It would also be quite funny to take out when you say oh I think I'll only have one glass today - hello, big glass!

Purists should also like this glass because it will allow the wine to breathe - who needs to decant their wine when they have a large bottle of wine glass to pour it into?

Whatever the reason you want to use for having/buying this rather large wine glass have fun, but remember don't drink and drive - only having one glass is funny in front of friends at home, but not behind the wheel on the roads.

Butterfly Accessory Holder

I have only just come across these butterfly accessory holders, although they have been around for a while.   They are available in green, white, pink and purple that I have seen - take a look at what they are like -

Don't they look like something that would suit a girls bedroom?   I was thinking that they'd look good hanging from the hook on the back of dd's bedroom door.   They would also hang up in the wardrobe easily.

These are promoted as butterfly scarf hangers and are ideal for hanging up all of your scarves, but when I came across them I was told they were a butterfly accessory holder. I was at the house of one of my daughter's school friends and her friend had a purple butterfly accessory holder on the back of her door.  

There were two scarfs, a couple of belts and some necklaces all hanging from it and my daughter thought it looked pretty cool.    Guess what might just be on her birthday list this year?  

Not only does the butterfly scarf hanger make it easy for you to store your scarves.....or belts or other accessories, it also looks good and can make your accessories also act as room decor.

Hello Kitty iPhone Cases

Do you have a Hello Kitty iPhone Case yet?   I must admit I'm not quite sure how Hello Kitty became as big as she did, but she has certainly mesmerized millions around the world including people I buy gifts for so when I saw some iphone cases with Hello Kitty on them my eyes brightened as I realized I'd found the perfect gift for one of my nieces.

I've actually managed to compile a whole page of Hello Kitty iPhone cases which I'm sure you'll enjoy looking at.   Unfortunately as soon as I'd compiled an absolutely awesome collection of Hello Kitty iPhone cases (my dd's words - I'm guessing I've found another Hello Kitty fan), my affiliate underwent some difficulties and all of the links stopped working :(

I've now sourced some more Hello Kitty iphone cases and I have to say that there is even more selection and there are some gorgeous one available including some that combine the bling bling factor with Hello Kitty.

There are some great Hello Kitty silicone cases like the one featured and these are available in a range of different colors from black and white through to pink, orange, red and more.   These are great when you just want to give someone a Hello Kitty iphone case, but you're not sure which design they'd prefer.   You can't go wrong with this classic Hello Kitty look in their favorite color.

Not everyone likes the silicone cases however, my daughter does(for her ipod, mum hasn't let her have an iphone yet!), but I noticed that my niece seems to prefer hard cases for her iphone and you can get classic Hello Kitty designs in hard cases too.

I especially like this design with lots of little Hello Kittys all over it, but you can get designs like the classic silicone one above in a hard case as well.

As far as a lot of Hello Kitty fans are concerned you can't go past the rhinestone encrusted Hello Kitty iphone cases and I have a number of them on the webpage I mentioned above.   It's these rhinestone encrusted iphone cases that add the bling bling factor to the Hello Kitty iphone fashion and there's more than one type to choose from.

There are animal print rhinestone Hello Kitty iphone cases as well as the pretty in pink style of Hello Kitty iphone cases like the one I've found for you here.

There are also some gorgeous red rhinestone Hello Kitty iphone cases and silver (diamond look) cases to choose from.

I hope you've found a Hello Kitty iphone case that appeals to you, remember for a much larger selection you'll really want to visit my Hello Kitty iphone case page as there are cases for the iphone 3 or 4 and the selection is fantastic.
